“The runner Dana Hussein has been excluded because there is a case in this regard,” Abdel Hamid said in a telephone conversation with Agence France-Presse of the Japanese capital Tokyo.

The Iraq Olympic Committee has received a letter from the International Association of Athletics Federations, which I believe was this exclusion, which was described as being in accordance with international anti-doping rules and requiring the runner to suspend and temporarily suspend all outside participation, including the Tokyo Olympics, from July 16, until a decision is made.

Hussein won gold in the 200m race at the last Arab Championship in Tunisia last June, setting a new Arab record of 22.50 seconds.

A source in the Iraqi Athletics Federation confirmed that “runner Hussein underwent a series of lab tests while competing in the Arab Championship and had a nose job before leaving for Tunisia. Medical materials and treatments are believed to have caused this without knowing their effect. “

Iraq participates in the Tokyo Olympics with the smallest mission in the history of its participation, as the delegation includes three athletes after the exclusion of Hussein, namely Muhammad Riyad (rowing), Fatima Abbas (shooting, 10m air pistol) and Taha Hussein (athletics, 400m).
